Subject The absolute uri: cannot be resolved
Date Thu, 15 Jul 2004 15:56:31 GMT

I'm trying to do what the Struts docs mention here (scroll down to

which is, do away with declaring the struts taglibs in my web.xml
altogether and just use an absolute URI for the taglib declaration in
ths JSP like so:

<%@ taglib prefix="html" uri="" %>

I also shouldn't need any tld files in WEB-INF/lib - all I need is struts.jar.

I'm deploying on Tomcat 5.0.25 which should handle this. But instead I
get a 500:

org.apache.jasper.JasperException: The absolute uri: cannot be resolved in either
web.xml or the jar files deployed with this application

This same mechanism is working perfectly well for JSTL, that is:

<%@ taglib prefix="c" uri="" %>

is finding the TLD for JSTL core in the JSTL far file in WEB-INF/lib just fine.

Any clues anyone?
